Longing for singles success in Rio
At 27, China's Ma Long is dreaming of adding the Olympic men's singles title to his already phenomenal haul. The table tennis star has a chance to become just the 5th male player to complete a Grand Slam (holding the Olympic, world championship and World Cup singles crowns).
Long has dominated the sport in recent years, and no more so than in 2015. He became singles world champion, won the World Cup (singles and team) and the World Tour Grand Finals (singles), losing just 1 game in international competition and 5 overall.
An 8-time world champion, who won team gold with China at London 2012, Long has been world number 1 since March 2015. Singles gold in Rio will guarantee his status as one of the all-time greats.
